Certificate in European Union Studies

The Certificate in European Union Studies will allow students in a range of social science and humanities programs to pursue a specialization in the European Union (EU). This program is of particular interest to students majoring in International Affairs or Political Science, although the program is open to students in other disciplines. The certification that comes with completion of the program requirements will document the student’s expertise in European Union Studies (EUS), opening opportunities for internships, careers, or advanced study in this area.
Students admitted into the program complete coursework with EU content going beyond what they can obtain merely by completing their majors. They participate in co-curricular activities to augment their understanding of the development, focus, functioning and future of the EU. Upon completion of this program, students have a sound understanding of the European Union, its politics, history, institutions, economics, policies and member states.
